Exciting Update!

Hi everyone,

I haven’t written for a while as things have been moving at GLACIAL speed – but finally we have some news to update you on.

The Topological Survey

The topological survey was done last month – this is to map out the site for the glamping and take measurements of all the levels for our planning drawings.

Here are a few pics I sneakily took:

Planning

Our planning application has finally been submitted!

It’s been a long slow process, and now we wait to hear the response from the council, with everything crossed they won’t have any objections.

We’re really confident that the huts we’ve chosen will have very little visual impact on the landscape, and will really blend in to the surroundings.

We speak at the Parish Council meeting on 18th July, so hopefully everything goes smoothly and we can get them to see what we want to achieve here; a peaceful, beautiful, high end retreat, collaborating with local businesses to give our visitors a memorable stay and a taste of how lovely it is to live here in Cornwall.

Wish us luck!

The Huts

We are SO EXCITED about the huts we’ve chosen, and we fell in love with them the second we discovered them.

There are none like it in the UK as yet, so you can be assured of a truly unique glamping experience here that you won’t get anywhere else in the UK. We’re also really proud to say that we will also be the showhome for these huts in Cornwall and Devon.

We don’t want to give too much away just yet until we have our planning application approved.. at which point we’ll be shouting from the rooftops(!) – but here’s a sneaky peek at the interior…

Yep, aren’t they amazing!!!! Just wait until you see more… watch this space.

With much love from the Liddles x

Our Luxury Glamping Vision is Born

Here we are, our very first blog post. It’s been a couple of years dreaming but we’re finally ready to make the first steps towards becoming a luxury glamping business, here in South East Cornwall.

Every morning we look out across lush green fields towards the sea, and every evening (come rain or shine) we sit outside and admire the very same view, watching the intermittent flash of the Eddystone Lighthouse on the horizon. And every second of every day we count ourselves so lucky to live here. We’ve often talked about how it’s the perfect holiday location. Peaceful, beautiful, sea views, beaches within 5 minutes, the whole of Cornwall on the doorstep.

Lucky enough to also have enough land to be able to create a secluded holiday destination – we have a vision to build 3 luxurious and high spec Shepherds Huts, all taking advantage of the sea views. Each will have en suite facilities, and we may even be able to stretch to a hot tub, all things going well!

So where do we start? Well, we have a meeting with a local architect this week, who comes very highly recommended. We want to make sure that whatever we propose in our planning application has only a positive effect on the local landscape and environment.

We don’t really fully know yet how long it will take, or all the steps to get there, but the journey starts here, and I’m sure things will all fall into place as we go.

Follow us on our journey creating our luxury glamping site – Lydcott Glamping – opening to visitors hopefully some time in 2018. (that’s as specific as we’re getting for now!)
